As I was driving to this shoot, I realized that I had forgotten my space heater.
Space heaters are a crucial part to any newborn shoot because they provide baby with lots of warmth for all of those naked shots, as well as a good amount of white noise! (Babies LOVE white noise.) Either way, it was too late to go back so I figured we would just make do. If there is one thing that I've learned since I've started taking photos professionally, is to roll with the punches! Things happen -- they can AND WILL go wrong. My job is to stay super easy going, stay in the zone, and get the shots. I've had to use lamps as tripods, tin foil as reflectors, and after this shoot I can now say I have also used a blowdryer as a space heater. Don't judge, you do what you gotta do!
And by the way -- it worked like MAGIC.
(Now take a moment to feast your eyes on this little nugget of gerber baby cuteness.)
